Discipleship is not a destination, it’s a direction.

Discipleship is not a destination, it’s a direction.

First Church Tables are about taking a ‘believer in Jesus’ and moving them towards ‘looking more and more like Jesus’. First Church Tables is a place where your belief begins to become part of the DNA of who you are in your everyday life, always growing in the direction toward Jesus. Your First Church Table will meet once each week for a few months, at the church or in someone’s home. You’ll talk through a book, scripture or just life. There are First Church Tables for adults in several stages in their life.

Depending on the Table Group you choose, we offer Children's Programming for kids of all ages. You must pre-register your child for Wednesday mornings. You can pre-register for Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings but, walk-ins are welcome.
